Answer for Greenwich Peninsula

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are regular meetings between the GLA and Knight Dragon, since it took an interest in Greenwich Peninsula more than two years ago.

I last met with Knight Dragon representatives during a visit to the Peninsula to tour the new development on 17 October 2014 and previously met them in October 2013.

GLA officers and TfL commercial and operations officers sit on the Greenwich Peninsula Strategic Board, a high level steering group held bi-monthly co-chaired by the Deputy Mayor for Housing and the Leader of RBG.

In addition, a monthly Project Control Group meeting is attended by GLA officers and Knight Dragon employees, as a contractual requirement of the development agreement with the GLA.

Officers from my planning team have had 6 pre application meetings with Knight Dragon over the last 2 months, on 25 July 2014, 6 October 2014, 28 October 2014, 4 November 2014 and 14 November 2014. Officers from the Housing and Land team also attended these meetings with the exception of the meeting on 4 November 2014. These meetings were not attended by TfL.

TfL and Knight Dragon meetings include: 

Liaison -progress and coordination meeting -  8 August 2014.

Silvertown Tunnel Land Interests Liaison Group - representatives from Knight Dragon have attended the two meeting of this engagement group, which took place on 16 June and 2 October 2014 at Pier Walk. Representatives from other land interests affected by the scheme are invited to this group including officers from Housing and Land and officers from LB Newham and RB Greenwich.
